  • Notes 
    • Earliest known direct maternal ancestor of TNH.

      Her origins are a source of confusion. Many sources give her as a daughter of George Travis (also spelled Joryer Trabus, Trefus, etc.) and Janneke Duyster, the latter a daughter of the eminent deacon Barent de Duyster by his second wife Dirkje Smit. But we find no actual documentation for this, and we note that were it true, Sarah Travis would have been born to a 53-year-old father and a 39-year old mother — not impossible, but questionable.

      The generally reliable Settlers of the Beekman Patent asserts (without citing a source) that she was a daughter of "Thomas Travis, Jr.", so we have given her father and grandfather as Thomas Travises.
